In a new effort to advertise good health and to follow their “smoke-free Games” plan, the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee installed a “No Smoking” special placard in the Olympic Park even on March 30th. With the support of the World Health Organization (WHO), Sochi will be the twelfth next Olympic Games to be free of tobacco smoke. More than 155,000 athletes, sports delegation representatives and volunteers will be protected by the no-smoking policy.
It was a ceremonious event when the head of the WHO representative office in Russia, Mr. Luigi Migliorini personally installed the official smoke-free sign when he was visiting the Olympic venues, which is still under construction. He also presented a seminar on firm development named “Controlled tobacco refusal and the creation of smoke-free medical institutions,” a debate of the most effective actions and new methods for to discourage smoking cigarettes during the coming Olympic Games.
Smoking tobacco products will be banned at all Olympic and Paralympic places. There will be designated special smoking places which are placed outside the area so as not to discomfort non-smokers. Smoking will also be prohibited in all bars and restaurants in Olympic Park. No tobacco will be sold in any of the Olympic venues, and the Organizing Committee’s no-smoking law will be transmission throughout the big events.
